to tackle the fiscal cliff, an economic mandate that could throw the economy into a tail spin unless democrats and republicans stop it all. house speaker john boehner wants a deal on spending cuts. president obama says that is not enough. >> if we're serious about reducing the deficit we have to combine cuts with revenue. >> joining us is jonathan strong. even if tax rates went up on the wealthiest households earning more than $250,000 a year the president, as the president demands, this would actually do almost nothing to reduce the deficit. i look at the joint tax committee report of conscious saying it would reduce the deficit only by 7%. that is 7% out of $1.1 trillion. in many ways is the president's solution more of an illusion? >> he is trying to sell this as a matter of fairness. he seems to be making progress politically on that front. you have a good point. another good question, there isn't any theory this would help the economy. the estimates are it would hurt this the economy. is now the right time for that? people are still hurting out there. >> gregg: the president is

. they are the ones who hire. that is a huge issue because jobs drive the economy. that is what the cbo is looking at if the fiscal cliff goes through we will see a contraction of the economy. >> gregg: over the next four years, what industries or companies could be winners or losers? >> i mentioned some of the ones that were hard hit and some of the others that did well after the election. if you look at things companies that pay out dividends. >> gregg: utilities. >> very good point. we'll see that the sector hit. it's been down 5% just for fears of this. you could see tech companies go up. they don't pay dividends. they plow their cash back in the company. their lobbyists have been success withful with the congress. >> gregg: financial industry despises the dodd-frank hyper regulations. they were trying too to overturn it. it doesn't look terribly likely right now unless the courts do it in some information. is that still negotiable because the rule making is still in the hands of regulators? >> yeah, it is but a lot of pessimism by banks about this whole issue. they will be facing these regula
